Glenn Beck! Can you hear me now?

OldNo.7J.D. suggested I tell Mr. Beck my simple "sincerity test" so I emailed him. I do not facebook or twitter or watch / listen to his show. Here is my email:

"A Ron Paul libertarian can sum this up very succinctly for you.
It is about the non-aggression principle. If and when you embrace that simple tenet, I will believe you are a champion of liberty. I hope you will find Lew Rockwell an acceptable source for libertarian philosophy:

It is also a commandment of Christ:
"A new commandment I give unto you, That ye love one another; as I
have loved you, that ye also love one another." John 13:34
Not a suggestion, a commandment.

I was not wherever your contact was, but had I been, I would have snubbed him. I think you are a shill, trying to co-opt the libertarian movement and make it part of the warmongering machine that the OBushma years have been. Prove me wrong, please. Use your soapbox to teach non-aggression."

I got blown off by self-serving auto-reply. I am shocked, shocked, I tell you...

"Thanks so much for the email. Due to the volume of mail this may be the only response you see.
While I do not always see it in a timely fashion I do try to read all of my mail. However, I average over 4000 letters a day and there is no way I can respond to most letters.
I am glad you are watching/listening and even though you may not see a response, I want you to know that I am listening as well.

He included a link I won't promote here.
But I figured I try to turn up the heat a little and see if we can get a semi-official "Ron Paul libertarian" reply thread. I think we can get his attention. Have your own litmus test? Put it into words, post it. Agree with me? Vote it up.

Liberty for individuals, tolerence and non aggression.

Government's are necessarily evil. That's why the States drafted the Bill of Rights.

Free includes debt-free!
